Are You Not Educated? -- "Arena Subbing"

The wild world of Daytona Beach. In the recent economic crunch, the Volusia County school district has slashed the budget for substitute teachers. Administrators have named the result, "Arena Subbing."

According to the article, high schools and middle schools have been forced to assign up to 200 kiddos to a PAIR of substitute teachers. They meet in the library or the "old gym."

Why not just scratch gym class and assign students to a day of gym when their teacher is absent? Wacky.
